Wonderful aroma, rich, deep and sweet with heady alcohol, malty, caramel smell. Beautiful dark caramel color. Strong and sweet taste - definitely a sipper.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Vanilla bourbon flavors are molded into a lascivious mouthfeel heated up by alcohol heat and lingering wood.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam decorates the darkest ruby.
-The mouthfeel is rich, yes, but the supple carbonation makes it become an elegant dessert.
-The flavor profile is rather linear. Malts aren’t as deep as I like in this style (overtaken by the barrel treatment, probably?)
-Licorice-like sugared fruitiness appears after a while.

Poured from a bottle from 2012, so it has about 2 years of age on it. Strong aroma of bourbon and maple syrup. Rich, clear, and inviting caramel color with little to no head. Maple syrup qualities are prominent in the flavor as well. Bourbon and booziness is also there. These flavors overwhelm pretty much everything else, probably because of the age on the bottle. I really like it but think I prefer it a bit fresher.

Felreggad tidigare som Double Trouble.
Flaska från SB. Rödbrun dimmig vätska med en fin liten brun skumkrona. Doftar Baileys med kokos. Kraftig alkoholsmak och Baileyskänslan ligget kvar. Lämnar en bedövad gom med viss sötma och beska. Ingen öl i min smak...

Pours a cloudy chestnut brown with minimal head. Aroma is figgy with dark and sweet malts. Flavor is very sweet and masks the abv very well. There is nothing to dislike about this brew.
